i guess that the only reason why C++ people need such project is
because there are too many developers that want to develop such libs.
that's not true for Haskell. for example, the most successful library
of 2006 - ByteString - was developed by just 3 main contributors. if
you want to develop somewhat useful - just do it. if you want to add
more functionality to existing library - including base! - just send
your patches to the maintainer. the only thing we missing, imho, is a
darcs repository (or instructions for dummies like me on how to setup
my own publicly accessible repository, say, on haskell.org)

Best regards,
